Reviews for Rancho Bravo Tacos


I eat a carnitas burrito here on a weekly basis. Great spicy red, green salsa. Hot means hot. Still enjoy that the space is a converted KFC.

Rancho Bravo Tacos

Basic Mexican fare (pozole, burritos, tacos) served out of an old KFC. Good prices. Quick, friendly service.

Cheap good mexican food – I feel compelled to write a review after reading the only posted review for this restaurant. I have eaten at Rancho Bravo on many occasions. Food is always satisfying. If you are not an arrogant foodie and just want descent mexican food give Rancho Bravo a try. Tacos are very good, not quite Marination but very good. I typically get the Bravo Burrito and douse it in hot sauce, not haute cuisine but satisfying.

Restaurant is located in old KFC and is generally clean, and typically packed with hungry patrons.

Citysearch Editorial Review – Built in a retired Capitol Hill KFC, this simple Mexican joint has retained all of the charm (meaning none) of its former inhabitant. The eatery is related to the Wallingford taco truck and serves out much of the same--house-made tamales, tacos, tortas and loosely assembled burritos--which is only appropriate, given the fact that the fast-food interiors are barely more comfortable than a taco truck's picnic table. Since it's widely know that Seattle usually lacks in Mexican food options, the eatery's attempt at authenticity (the tacos are legit, and the horchata is particularly refreshing) is embraced by the Hill residents that fill the place at every meal. Just guessing that old KFC didn't have the same draw.

No better than decent – The *idea* of Rancho Bravo is great: Small, quick, authentic Mexican taqueria in the heart of Capitol Hill, re-purposed from an old KFC store, open late.

The reality of Rancho Bravo is it's not very good.

Complaining about a $4 burrito might seem moot; as long as it's edible it's cheap enough to call it a wash. But it's OK to expect more from your burrito, people. The primary fault of Rancho Bravo's is its construction; even with the foil tight, unwrapped every few bites, it devolves into a gushy blob and falls apart as you eat. No structural integrity means flavors are lost. Makes me miss SF.

Stick with the tacos. At $2 a pop you can't go wrong. Simple and delicious: steamed tortilla, onion, cilantro, your choice of meat. The al pastor pork is especially good.

Pozole is greasier than it should be and less tasty. Points for a fist-size hunk of pork leg (or some other pig part equally meaty) floating in the tomatoey broth, but there should be more complexity to this dish.

No aguas frescas, but they do have Mexican Coke.
